A video in which Lazio fans singing this song in front of stewards and police went viral on social media after the team won 1-0 in Naples.
In it they proudly call themselves racists and insult supporters of local Roma rivals, saying that their fathers were deported to Nazi concentration camps.
FIGC announced yesterday that it was investigating unspecified chants against the Napoli striker. Victor Osimhen.
The incident is the latest in a long line of ardent Lazio fans, some of the far right in a country where fascist fan groups are widespread.
